According to an article by ZDnet:
“ Some of the companies are desperate for tech skills, making technology a highly recession-proof career field.
Employees with cloud, software development and IT security skills are most likely to be safe from layoffs and other workforce pressures caused by a recession over the next year.
Developers and cloud experts are in “unprecedented” demand and cybersecurity professionals were identified as the employees companies are most eager to hire in the year ahead.
Salaries for tech workers are also less affected by inflation than those of workers in other industries.
The need for cybersecurity professionals was becoming even more urgent as cyberattacks on businesses, consumers and infrastructure mount in frequency and sophistication.
